Holy Saturday
Saturday, April 20th at 7:30pm
Easter Vigil Mass
The Easter Vigil is the highlight of the ecclesiastical year. The lighting of the Easter candle in a dark church symbolizes Jesus, our only Light. That light is passed from one person to the next, as the candles of all the faithful are lit and the entire church is illuminated by candlelight.
We read from scripture about the relationship between God and his people. Two adults will be baptized and received into the Church and all the faithful will renew their baptismal vows. The Eucharist is then celebrated with a great sense of joy because of everything that Jesus has given us.
Easter Sunday
Sunday, April 21st
Mass Times: 7:30am, 9:00am, 10:30am (with Children’s Liturgy), 12 Noon
